Going to Utah tomorrow

Please pray for a safe trip!

You know something's the matter with you when your first thought is which books you are going to pack.
I'm really excited for snow and skiing. I know most of you get snow, but I took this picture of the outside yesterday-
 That's pretty much year-round weather right there. 

Snow. I want SNOW.

We're going to be in Utah for Chinese New Year. But that's all right, because we celebrated already.
The best part of Chinese New Year is this:

Yummy!

Chinese New Year cake.  年糕, or "nian gao" as it says on the picture. It's not really cake.Well, it is, but not by the American definition of cake. It's steamed rice flour and sugar, and sticky, and it's delicious! I had a big plate this morning. I can eat it for the rest of my life. 

When I think of Mandalorian uj cake, I think of that.  
There are many different kinds, but this is the kind I eat. You cut it into pieces and microwave it. <3

Now, we don't put anything inside the cake, but a lot of people put nuts and dried fruit in it. XP.
Go to the store and buy a brick of it.

Random Star Wars quotes:
Tycho Celchu: Jaina, this is Colonel Celchu.This transmission is scrambled and coming through your astromech. General Antilles is issuing a direct order. Do not reenter the combat zone. Return to base. Do you understand?
Jaina Solo: Don't tell me the odds.
Tycho Celchu: [sounding confused] I didn't tell you the odds.

Jaina Solo: Good.
 
 
“His last word,” Anakin said. “It took a lot out of him to say even that. He really wanted me to know something. I think Yag’Dhul may be in danger.”
Corran’s eyes narrowed, reflecting a sudden, plunging-stomach suspicion. “Anakin, where is this jump taking us?”
“You said Coreward,” Anakin replied innocenetly.
“Tell me we aren’t going to pop out in the Yag’Dhul system.”
“We aren’t going to pop out in the Yag’Dhul system,” Anakin told him.
“Good,” Corran said, relieved.
“We’re going to come out really near it, though.” Anakin added.
“Why you—” Corran held back a series of specifically Corellian words that he really wanted to use. But Tahiri was only fourteen. Would he make it through Valin’s and Jysella’s teenage years without turning to the dark side? Probably not.


Luke Skywalker: [holding up a sledge hammer] Behold the favorite weapon of Jedi before the invention of the lightsaber.
Tahiri Veila: You're kidding.
Luke Skywalker: Of course I'm kidding. C'mon. The Jedi sledge-hammer?

Oh, and I heard the Black Eyed Peas song "Where is The Love" for the first time. Go listen to it. It was the first song they became famous for, and it actually has a Christian-like message, especially the chorus"Father, Father, Father help us/send some guidance from above"

Boy has their music changed.

  2. Have fun in Utah!!! Wow, Amaranthine, it looks alot like that where I live, except today because it's going to rain....

    YUM! Funny, I'm not Chinese, but for Chinese New Year and the Moon Fest, my family celebrates. My grandparents went to China a lot and brought back a lot of the traditions. We eat the mooncakes and go out for Chinese food on the holidays. :D

    I love the quotes btw. Especially the first one and the Jedi Sledge hammer. That was so funny!!!!

  3. I just started reading the Percy Jackson books. Love them.

    Have a good time in Utah! Here in the glorious OR, we have erratic weather.... one day sunny, next day it's like it's flooding... :P Send some snow over, yeah?

    That Chinese cake description made me think of Babinka. A Filipino dessert ;)

    OK, well, we'll miss you, but have a great time, okay! :D

    I'll go look for my Jedi sledge hammer now.....

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
